牛奶棒

Milk Pastry Roll or otherwise known as 牛奶棒. We didnt think much of it when we strolled past it at Jiu Fen but decided to grab one anyway. Thank god we did, because it was my favourite thing to eat at 九份! It looks so simple and uninteresting compared to the other stuff available, but it tastes so good. Like the chinese youtiao shaped version of a croissant 😍

I really miss it now! Does anyone have a recipe for this?

Woohoo, I now have a dessert spot to pig out after my yoga sessions! 

 Wild Sheep Chase is a Taiwanese dessert cafe that uses only the finest ingredients for their desserts. Think kampung eggs and real vanilla pods for their soufflés as well as three types of chocolate for their devilish molten chocolate cake… Yum! 

Ps: their earl grey milk tea is super good!

  
      

I like the simple and minimalistic design of the place. Plenty of sunlight makes WSC a good spot for Instagram worthy shots ;) 

What are some of your favourite cafes in KL?

We love going to Hanazen on Tuesdays or Fridays cause that’s when their supply of awesome Japanese ingredients arrives. If you’re up for some omakase, grab a spot at the sushi table, let the chef know how much you’re willing to spend & he’ll work his magic ;)

 Sometimes when we’re not adventurous, we usually just go for the chef’s special sushi moriwase. The spread and quality of this is value for money.

Other times, I’ve had the grilled tuna eye.. It was as huge as the size of my fist before it was grilled! Check out that pearly white eyeball 😋

  

We were once served cold white corn as an appetizer and thought what’s so special about having corn? Upon our first bite, we knew we were so wrong to undermine it.. It was sweet and juicy like you’re having a dessert. My words won’t do the corn justice, you’ll have to try it out for yourself!

 

  
And when you have the mood to splurge or an occasion to celebrate, the Yonezawa beef is also available here. Apparently only a handful of places in Kl sell them. 

  
It was also my first time trying the Kinki fish! There’s so many more things left to try in Hanazen. 

Every trip is a delight for both Y and I because even a tomato can taste unique & a grape tastes like a grape :p

  
On a constant search for the best 芋泥 (orh nee, teochew yam dessert) in town. It is quite rare to find as making it is rather tedious and considered a lost art. This place does it really well.  My family loves it! They used to have a “gerai” up in pudu plaza and they had to shift out. Now they’ve settled here decently with nice interiors and air conditioning ✌🏻️

If you know of any other place that serves good 芋泥 in KL, please leave a comment down below! Share the love ❤️

Y is off to Germany for two weeks, and here I am sitting alone at home watching flashes of lightning. Alone.

I guess I need to learn how to enjoy some quiet me time and be more independent.

Before Y left for Germany, I thought it’d be nice to have some real good Chinese food so that he won’t miss it too much when he’s over there. Checked out a couple of nice ones on the web and thought that Way Modern Chinoise might just fit the bill. We had high hopes for the place and left with our tummies happy & satisfied.

The roast duck is amazing! It was such a shame that the truffle duck had to be pre ordered the day before and there were only 2 of us (that portion could easily feed 5), so we could only drool at the other table having it :(

We also had the crab roe fried rice, dragon leaf and the pomelo sago dessert. Wish they had the durian pancake available that day, I didn’t like my sago dessert. All in all, we both fell in love with the service, ambience and the food! Can’t wait to return for the truffle duck, I just hope it tastes as yummy as it sounds – truffle infused double roasted duck, topped with truffle slices!

I have been craving for crabs every single week. I think the more crabs I have, the more obsession I have over them. At one point, Y started calling me the crazy crab lady. If I had a crab restaurant of my own, I’d definitely name it Crazy 4 Crabs, but I will just have to settle down with Crazy Crabs for now.

My favourite has got to be the steamed crabs, one can only truly enjoy the natural sweetness of the fresh crabs through this cooking style. The butter milk crab was a total miss for me, very bland and not buttery at all ;(

Note that the minimum order is 2 crabs per cooking style (at RM 80/kg)!

A sip of their coffee and I was hooked! The latte I had was made with their in house roasted blend, which was fantastic. It was very aromatic and has got a good punch of acidity to it.

They have a wide variety of Mille Crepes here for you to choose from, almost like stepping in to a Nadeje store! Be sure to get their best seller Hokkaido Milk Choc Mille Crepe to go with your cuppa! And I got a cute little Snoopy with my cake…wouldn’t mind a Hello Kitty on my next visit :p

After two unsatisfying brunch experiences at Acme, I didn’t think I would find myself liking their food anymore. When Y suggested to head there for lunch, truth be told, I was dreading it because he kept chanting about how their lunch was pretty good and I didn’t wanna be a bubble pooper.

Alas, I was glad I went along quietly because I really enjoyed their small bites festive menu!

We had the Avocado Croquette, Sticky Nachos & Salt Egg Yolk Chicken Strips. Not in the picture would be the truffled root vegetable fries! Man, that was really good. In fact all of them were equally as awesome. Nothing could beat a truffled purple sweet potato fries for me though! I like how they did not skim on the ingredients and made sure everything came out fairly presentable and piping hot still.

IMG_9836 IMG_9851

Meatballs were nicely herbed, juicy and cooked in tomato fennel sauce. Winner would be the pasta. Rigatoni cooked al dente in Arrabiata sauce. Loved the smoky, a little spicy tomato sauce  pasta dish that was well cooked! Pretty impressed with it.

Before you leave, make sure you have a taste of their Jackfruit cake!

To avoid having to wait, please call them in advance to make a reservation. Yes, even for lunch. and yes, even on a weekday!

Was torn between Japanese and French. I have a list of places to eat bookmarked on my phone and being a fickle minded person, I can’t seem to make up my mind. Alas, T and I settled for french after he saw his favourite dish…. ESCARGOT! Me, on the other hand, was tempted by the mussels. How I miss a lovely pot of mussels after last year’s trip.

IMG_0265 IMG_0269

I reckon  a dash of cream, more herbs, and bacon would greatly help the already fresh mussels though.

IMG_0267 IMG_0256

For mains we had the Coq Au Vin (braised chicken with burgundy jus) and Duck Confit (how french and apt right). It’s only fitting for a French restaurant to have duck confit on its menu and it has got to be a winner dish too!

IMG_0270 IMG_0268

Absolutely loved the richness of the chocolate fondant! Dark and not too sweet, just the way i like it! The creme brûlée was a little bit too runny though. Anyone knows where I can find a darn good creme brûlée in KL? The search still continues…………

They also have promos going on for different days of the week.

IMG_0273

I definitely would wanna surrender my sweet tooth Tuesday to this place!

Friendships are easily developed when there are mutual respect and sincerity coming from both parties. I have been blessed with workmates that still remain as good friends even after I’ve left the company. T is one of them. We used to talk nonsense and laugh all the time at work. Thanks for having been there to hear my rants out and also encourage me to always be the best that I can be.

Till we meet again, next year!

There’s this special creperie place that I love going to in Shanghai. I would make it a point to visit this place whenever I’m there. Though the crepes are fairly expensive, they do live up to my expectations.
